Deuteronomy 32:1
JPS 32:1 Give ear, ye heavens, and I will speak; And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
ONK 32:1 Listen, ye heavens, and I will speak; give ear, earth, to the words of my mouth.
PAL 32:1 And when the last end of Mosheh the prophet was at hand, that he should be gathered from among the world, he said in his heart: I will not attest against this people with witnesses that taste of death in this world, behold, I attest against them with witnesses which do not taste of death in this world, and whose destination is to be renewed in the world to come. Isaiah the prophet, when he prophesied in the congregation of Israel, attributed hearing to the heavens, and attentiveness to the earth; because (in his case) earth was nearest and heaven more remote: but Mosheh the prophet, when he now prophesied in the congregation of Israel, attributed hearing to the earth, and attentiveness to the heavens; because (in his case) heaven was nearest and earth more remote; for so it is written, Attend, ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, earth, the words of my mouth.
JER 32:1 When the end of Mosheh came, that he should be removed from the world, he said: Behold, I testify in this world a thing which tasteth not of death; so will I attest against them the heavens and earth which taste not of death in this world, but whose end is to be consumed in the world that cometh. For so he explained, and said: Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and consider the earth beneath; for the heavens shall dissolve like smoke, and the earth fade away as a garment; but I have prepared to create new heavens and a new earth. Isaiah the prophet, when he prophesied in the congregation of Israel, because he was remote from the heavens and nearest the earth, attributed hearing to the heavens, and attention to the earth: for so he explaineth, and saith: Hear, heavens, and listen, earth; for the Word of the Lord hath spoken. Mosheh the prophet, &c. (as above.)
 
Deuteronomy 32:2
JPS 32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, My speech shall distil as the dew; As the small rain upon the tender grass, And as the showers upon the herb.
ONK 32:2 My doctrine shall be soft as rain; let it be received as the dew, and my word be as the breath of the rain that breathes upon the grass, and as the showers of the latter rain upon the herbage.
PAL 32:2 My doctrine shall smite the rebellious like heavy rain; but shall be enjoyed with pleasantness by those who receive instruction, as the dew: my words shall be like the downfalling rain of the wind that breathes upon the grass in the month of Marchesvan, and as the droppings of the latter rain which water the springing herbage of the earth in Nisan.
JER 32:2 The doctrine of my law shall be sweet to the children of Israel as the rain, the word of my mouth will be received by them with pleasantness as the dew, as the wind which breathes upon the herb, and as the drops of the latter rain that descend and water the herbage of the ground in Nisan.

JPS 32:3 For I will proclaim the name of the LORD; Ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
ONK 32:3 For in the Name of the Lord do I invoke:—Ascribe ye greatness unto our God;
PAL 32:3 Woe to the wicked who make memorial of the Holy Name with blasphemies. Wherefore Mosheh, who was the Doctor of Israel, would not permit himself to pronounce the Holy Name until he had dedicated his mouth at the beginning of his hymn with eighty and five letters, making twenty and one words, and afterwards he spake: In the Name of the Lord I invoke you, house of Israel, to ascribe glory and greatness before our God.
JER 32:3 Mosheh the prophet said: Woe to the wicked who make memorial of the Holy Name with blasphemies. For it is not possible even to one of the highest angels to utter that Name rightly until that they have said, Holy, Holy, Holy! thrice. And from them did Mosheh learn not to utter that Name openly until he should have dedicated his mouth with twenty-one words which consist of eighty-five letters;(52) and so explained he and said: Hear, ye heavens, and I will speak; for it is the Name of the Lord. Mosheh the prophet said: people of Israel, I invoke you, in the Name of the Lord, to give glory, praise, and highest exaltation unto God.]
 
Deuteronomy 32:4
JPS 32:4 The Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice; A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, Just and right is He.
ONK 32:4 the Mighty One whose works are perfect; for all His ways are justice; a faithful God from whom no iniquity proceedeth, just and true is He.
PAL 32:4 Mosheh the prophet said: When I ascended the mountain of Sinai, I beheld the Lord of all the worlds, the Lord, dividing the day into four portions; three hours employed in the law, three with judgment, three in making marriage bonds between man and woman, and appointing to elevate or to abase, and three hours in the care of every created thing: for so it is written: The Mighty One whose works are perfect, for all His ways are judgment, a faithful God before whom no iniquity comes forth, pure and upright is He.
JER 32:4 (The same words to)—three hours, uniting the marriage yoke of the husband to the wife...a faithful God and true; falsehood is not before Him; He is just and upright in judgment.
 
Deuteronomy 32:5

ONK 32:5 They have corrupted themselves, and not Him;(48) children who worship idols, a generation that changeth its work, and maketh it another.
PAL 32:5 The beloved children have corrupted their good works, a blemish is found upon them; a perverse generation which have altered their works; so shall the order of this world's judgment be altered upon them.

JPS 32:6 Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? Is not He thy father that hath gotten thee? Hath He not made thee, and established thee?
ONK 32:6 Behold, render you this before the Lord, ye people who have received the law, but have not become wise? Is He not thy Father, and thou art His who made thee and bought thee?
PAL 32:6 Can you indeed so requite the Name of the Word of the Lord, foolish people, and receive the law, yet not be made wise? Is He not your Father who bought(53) you, who created you and established you?
JER 32:6 Do you return this before the Lord, people foolish and unwise? Is He not your Father who is in heaven, who bought you? He created and founded you.
 
Deuteronomy 32:7
JPS 32:7 Remember the days of old, Consider the years of many generations; Ask thy father, and he will declare unto thee, Thine elders, and they will tell thee.
ONK 32:7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of generation and generation; ask thy fathers, and they will show thee, thy elders, and they will tell thee.
PAL 32:7 Remember the days of old; consider the years of every generation; read the books of the law, and they will teach you, and the books of the prophets, and they will tell you.

JER 32:8 When the Most High divided the nations by lot, and distinguished the languages of the children of men, He appointed the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the tribes of the Beni Israel
 
Deuteronomy 32:9
JPS 32:9 For the portion of the LORD is His people, Jacob the lot of His inheritance.
ONK 32:9 For the Lord's portion is His people, Jakob is the lot of His inheritance.
PAL 32:9 And when the holy people fell to the lot of the Lord of all the world, Michael opened his lips and said: Let the good portion of the Name of the Lord's Word be with Him. Gabriel opened his lips with thanksgivings, and said, Let the house of Jakob be the lot of His inheritance.
JER 32:9 Because the Lord's portion are His people, and the house of Jakob the lot of His inheritance.

PAL 32:11 As an eagle stirreth up and careth for his nest, and hovereth over his young, so did His Shekinah stir up the tents of Israel, and the shadow of His Shekinah overspread them; and as an eagle outstretcheth his wings over his young ones, beareth them and carrieth them upon his wings, so bare He them and carried them, and made them dwell upon the strong places of the land of Israel.

Mosheh at once opened his mouth in prayer, and said, Lord of all the world, I entreat that I may not be as a man who had one only son, who being in captivity, he went and redeemed him with great price; he taught him wisdom and art, espoused him to a wife, planted for him a royal bower, builded him a marriage house, prepared for him the bed, invited his companions, baked his bread, slew his victims, and mixed his wine; yet, when the time came for his son to make glad with his wife, and the guests were about to consecrate the feast; then was that man required to go to the house of judgment, before the king, and be punished with the judgment of death; neither would they delay to execute his sentence, that he might see the happiness of his son. So have I laboured for this people; I have led them by Thy Word out of Mizraim, I have taught them Thy Law, and builded for them the tabernacle to Thy Name; but now that the time hath come to pass the Jordan, I am punished with death! Let it please Thee to withhold from me this sentence until I have passed the Jordan, to see the good of Israel before I die. The Lord of the world answered him, and said:
